It’s been almost a month and a half since I started writing on IMBB. I would like to thank IMBB team and especially Neha for being so supportive and always being there to clear my doubts. Today, I am going to share a lipstick from Colorbar’s Soft touch range in shade Fleuron.
Product description: Give your lips a soft and smooth look with the Soft Touch Lipstick. Its rich creamy formula enhances the lips, while keeping them moisturized and nourished. With Vitamin A and E and apricot oil, the Soft Touch Lipstick has anti-aging properties that protect the lips from chapping and discoloration. With a unique fig fragrance, the Soft Touch Lipstick is available in classy shades.
Application: Line the lips with a suitable lip liner. Press the bullet to the lips using even pressure to apply color on both upper and lower lips: To refresh and even out, press lips together. Using a lip brush gives a richer and more precise color application.
Price and Quantity: INR 475 for 4.2 grams
Shelf life: 3 years
My experience with Colorbar Fleuron Soft Touch Lipstick:
Packaging: the lipstick comes in a silver metal case. The lid of the lipstick shuts with a satisfying click which makes it travel friendly. Also, it has a sticker pasted on its bottom with the shade name written on it so, you can easily locate the shade that you are looking for in case if you have more than one shade from this range. Colorbar is written on the lid in white color which looks stylish. Overall, I find the packaging quite classy and adorable.
Shade: The shade of this lipstick is a brownish maroon. However, it looks more on the reddish side in the swatches. In reality, it is a bit darker and leans towards brown. It also has silver shimmer in it but, that doesn’t make it look frosty. Rather, it reflects light. The shade is perfect for winter seasons. Unlike all dark shades, this lipstick flatters my complexion without adding years to my age. It’s neither glossy nor matte. I would say that it is somewhere in between.
Texture and pigmentation: The texture of this lipstick is quite creamy and glides on effortlessly. Now, please note here that the creaminess of the lipstick doesn’t make it hydrating. A lip balm is must under this lipstick (at least for very dry lips). The creamy texture and dark color makes it very difficult to apply this lipstick. The lipstick also transfers a lot, bleeds in hot weather and feathers. To tackle all this problems using a lip pencil underneath is advisable. Pigmentation and color pay off is great too. One single swipe is enough to cover even heavily pigmented lips.
Fragrance: The lipstick has a very funny cough syrup-y smell to it. Now, I have made peace with weird smells in my lip products. I no more think of it as a con. They also claim the fragrance to be of fig.
Staying power: The staying power of this product is quite average. It stays for about 3 hours on my lips after which, it starts fading away unevenly. The lipstick is not capable of surviving full meals and is completely vanished after one.
So summing up the pros and cons,
Pros of Colorbar Fleuron Soft Touch Lipstick:
• Attractive and travel-friendly packaging.
